Completely Undone' Closing Party & Event

  • CPG Gallery

Every picture tells a story…we've all heard that. But does it? Does every photo need to tell a story?

On Saturday, May 13th (1-5 p.m.,) featured photographer Robin George will host a closing party and general discussion of conveying emotion vs. storytelling in photography. Join us, and be part of the conversation exploring topics such as "Is photography art," and "Is digital manipulation still photography?"

Light refreshments will be served.

"All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth." - Richard Avedon

Note: 'Completely Undone' exhibit remains on view through Sunday, May 14th.
